Default Tint...Should I or no?

Ok, been thinking about this for a while, and its been coming up here on the forum alot. Every car I have had I always had the windows tinted, except this Ranger. I have been debating it, so I want to make a poll on here. If I get tint it will match all around.

So...To tint or not to tint....THAT is the question

Tint for sure. I really didn't like my new truck without the windows tinted it was way to bright and too much light inside. Tinted right after buying and much cooler and comfortable. Looks way better too

I had them match the factory back and rear sides... darker than I had my old truck and sometimes a bit harder to see details in the dark with no light but overall like the darker tint better.

I have 5 percent all around plus the privacy tint that was on the back windows. I love it! It makes it so that I can mosh and rage to Ke$ha and no one will know!

Id say go for it!

That shit should have been tinted directly after you signed the title..

i've got 10% on the back windows and 20% the rest of the way around, come april i'll have 35% on the ENTIRE windshield. Nobody needs to see what the hell i've got or what i'm doing inside my truck.

I say Yes to tint, but you might want to watch matching it. Everyone i know with the same percent around gets pulled over for it. idk. I have yet to be stopped for it (knock on e-wood). PA sucks for tint.

just a heads up
